Welcome to the ECLiPSE Lab
Our mission is to conduct high-quality research studies that provide insight into child, social, and cultural factors that shape children's and adolescents' social, school, and psychological adjustment in diverse populations and to prepare undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars from diverse backgrounds and perspectives for success in social science research careers.
Central Research Goals
Describe the nature, and develop accurate measures, of children's social withdrawal and social competence
Determine why children and adolescents develop social withdrawal and social competence
Establish if, how, and why social withdrawal and social competence affect children's and adolescents' adaptation in other domains
Examine if, how, and why children's and adolescents' experiences of adversity and/or marginalization relate to their psychological adjustment and academic adjustment
